Father's Day Card for OWH

Recently I was inspired by a lady who was making a whole batch of masculine cards for Operation Write Home.  I have a hard time making masculine cards, but I knew I really wanted to try my hand at that challenge.  So over the last week I have slowly been making masculine cards for OWH out of a 4.5x6.5" paper stack I bought from Hobby Lobby called Glasses, Staches & Ties.
I added a ribbon around the center and three gold adhesive metal circles in the center below the sentiment.  Normally I would have used pop dots under the sentiment layer, but OWH prefers cards to be as flat as possible, so I didn't do that for these cards.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
